Much controversy exists concerning the use of nonhuman animals in biomedical research. Textbooks, articles, and journals are dedicated to studying animal models, studying alternatives, and debating various aspects of the issue. Surprisingly however, very little information exists on how many animals actually are used in the United States, the distribution of federally funded grants to researchers using animals versus those not using animals, and what criteria must be met when animals are to be used in biomedical research. In a recent pioneering study, Plous and Herzog (2001) examined the acceptance rates of animal model protocols by institutional animal care and use committees in different institutions in the United States. If a baseline has not been established, we do not think it is possible to track changes in asset allocation vis-a-vis animal versus nonanimal research funding. We undertook this study to shed light on the issue of how much federally funded money is allocated to animal models in biomedical research.
